I don't know about that...though I've read so many Trek and Treknical books in my life I may have and just forgotten it...I don't recall any Kestrel that was based on the Decatur class at least...

Ok, revisiting the concept of a 2280s Galaxy class I think for the last time:

Looks Cool

New ship, and thanks to Dr X (over at the Sub Odeon board) for the new pylon!

I really like the Starrunner vessel, i particularly like the 'hammerhead' look of the ships bow.

Agreed. With a shape like that it's almost a crime not to name it Discovery. Also, the nacelles kinda don't fit. Should have been something more along the lines of what you used for the central spine.

I also like the 854 class cutter. Am currently working on my own interpretation of it, using Vance's toolkit.

Anyway, keep up the good work!

Great front view. That's about the only design that keeps those nacelles looking great.

How about designing something more original? These Vance's toolkit kitbashes have been done to death.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Hard to think of anything truly original at this point, don't you think?

Atolm's
asymmetrical/reverse designs are pretty close though.

I think everything has been done so many different ways, at least Federation-wise.

There's alot of good original stuff out there. Kitbashes are not it.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

You said what has been on my mind for some time, but never said because I didn't want to unintentionally offend.

I would like to see some designs that are either brand new, or use newly designed parts, such as using/heavily modifying an Excelsior saucer to make a supplement/replacement for the Larson and Loknar class, for example.

You realize that even the US Navy "kitbashes" ships right?

The Spruance, Kidd and Ticonderoga Classes have the same hull. The George Washington class boomer is simply a cut-in-half Skipjack with a missile compartment grafted in.

Simply reusing parts in and of itself is not a bad thing. It actually makes a lot of sense from a manufacturing standpoint. It simplifies the tooling and supply chain drastically.

Some of the designs up thread are interesting.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

The Navy does not scale down a carrier hull to make a PT boat.

Most of the designs (or very similar) up thread have been around the internet a thousand times. They take little time or work and it shows.
